Joe Everett — Draft Scouts

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

To quote the late great Colonel Sanders; “I”m too drunk to taste this chicken.”

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Jared Ferree – Who else? Jared and I have been competing in leagues for years. It will be great to beat up on him again. 🙂

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

Well my strategy was to hope that the rest of my competition would forget that this league had the QB flex rule and I could just clean up on the ignorant but there you go referencing the rules and pasting a direct link in this questionnaire. Way to go man.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I’m a classically trained concert bassist that has played in Carnegie Hall twice and in the Musikverein in Vienna as well as multiple cities throughout Europe. [Zach note: I believe we could come up with a solid “fantasy football players” traveling band.]

Shane P. Hallam — DraftTV

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

I am Shane P. Hallam, President and Owner of DraftTV.com, doing everything fantasy football and NFL Draft. I am twitter obsessed and answer every question over @ShanePHallam

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

So many guys and gals in our division that I want to take down but Allie Fontana is a staple in the fantasy community, so it will be nice to get those wins over her 🙂

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

I usually let everyone else scramble for the QBs while I scoop up that WR and RB value. I’ll take some older guys later who will outperform their ADP

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I have directed over a dozen musicals during the last 8 years. [Zach note: Did I already suggest “Fantasy Football: The Musical”?]

Nathan Powell — Dynasty League Football

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

My Twitter persona is that of a question asker who enjoys to laugh at the misery of fantasy footballers(including myself). I’m @NPowellFF, and you are not.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Matt Kelly. Only because that jerk Aaron Swinderman isn’t in my division

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

I know it’s boring to say I go BPA, but I went BPA, selecting Brees in the 3rd round, and a pair of middle round QBs to play the matchups with Alex Jesus Smith and Sam Where is my ankle Bradford

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I have funneled 3 beers(natty lights) at one time on multiple occasions

Allie Fontana — Fantasy Fix

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

I’ve been playing fantasy football for 12 years and active in the fantasy community as a writer, editor, analyst, podcaster and Twitter-opiner since 2009. Firm believer that there is no crying in fantasy football. Could’woulda/shouldas are okay in the context of lessons learned otherwise they’re conduct unbecoming! I’m always up for a interesting Twitter convo so let me hear from you @AllieFontana.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

I’m an equal opportunity ass-kicker so all my league mates have targets on their backs!

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

I’ll see your “strategery” and raise you my #tenawesome strategery. I’m all about the balance, ’bout the balance, ’bout the balance between production and potential. While I take SFB360’s unique scoring /flex rules into account, my general approach is to put together a balanced roster that positions my team to score points and win those early season match-ups with battle-tested, proven players while upside guys/sleepers/late-round flyers get their sea legs under them. In other words, I prefer to spread the talent throughout the roster and aim to get at least one stud at each of the key positions. This is especially important given how early we draft–position battles have yet to be decided; many of last season’s injured players are still-on-the-mend and we don’t know how well they’ll bounce back…and then there are the inevitable and dreaded training camp, preseason or personal time mishaps (fireworks that go BOOM in the night) that derail a player’s season and your fantasy team before Week 1. ADP serves a purpose, but I don’t obsess over it given the caliber of the competition and format of the league. It’s awesome to get return-on-investment (ROI) on a value pick so it pays to be on the lookout for those opportunities, however if I really want to roster a particular player, it’s prudent to grab him when you can. There are SHARKS everywhere and I’ve kicked myself in the past for waiting on a target a round too long. Last but not least, I always keep in mind that the draft is just the beginning of the journey. Past experience with the Fishbowl has shown that success comes to those who are savvy/ahead of the curve with waiver wire pickups.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

Not sure that this qualifies as a “talent” since it’s not a skill that I learned per se, but rather discovered as a child…I’m naturally ambidextrous and a subset of that is being able to “mirror write” which is the ability to write letters backward and in reverse order from right to left and I can do it at a fairly quick clip.

Jared Ferree — Pro Football Addicts

Matt Kelley — RotoUnderworld

Raymond Summerlin — Rotoworld

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

I write about fantasy football at Rotoworld.com, I talk about fantasy football on the Rummy and Ray Podcast, and I make sarcastic comments about fantasy football on Twitter. I need another sentence.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Jared Ferree, but just because I like to set the bar low. [Zach note: Dang, who decided it was rip on Jared week?]

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

The QB flex format is not terribly draft breaking because all you do is bump up the quarterbacks a few rounds in your overall rankings and call it a day. The scoring for this league adds a much more interesting wrinkle. Though it is standard in a lot of leagues, people still undervalue running quarterbacks in four points per passing touchdown leagues. As opposed to six points per leagues in which is basically just total touchdowns, quarterbacks who score a lot of rushing touchdowns get a big bump because two rushing touchdowns are equal to three passing touchdowns in this league. That obviously helps players like Russell Wilson and Cam Newton, but it also helps under the radar rushers like Andy Dalton or Joe Flacco. The .25 points per rushing attempt is the most interesting scoring wrinkle I am not sure many will take into account. While I am down on LeSean McCoy in standard leagues this year, in this format the pure volume he should see as the unquestioned lead on a run-heavy team should give him a lot more value. Alfred Morris and Matt Forte could be two other underwhelming redraft options who could benefit in this format as well.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

My ability to deflect questions.

Katie Flower — UTH Dynasty

em>Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

@FF_Skyler399 a convert from redraft into dynasty I contribute to UTH Dynasty with strategy articles. I love the nuances of strategy with all of the different formats out there.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

I would like to take down hallowed Shane Hallam because he is the man, the myth, the legend.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

If I gave you my strategery before the draft I would have to keel you :). Let’s just say that I intend to employ John Nash theory of equilibrium in the way that I draft with a little Sun Tzu on the side for good measure.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I can build the coolest custom cakes.

Hussain Hazimi — Fan

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

Twitter handle is @hazimi27. No persona, I just love fantasy football and the more leagues I’m in, the better, makes me a better player.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Allie Fontana of course!

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

Started with going QB, QB because how well that worked out for me the first year I did this league, but then that quickly changed on my second pick where I had to secure a decent RB.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

Nothing of shock and awe, sorry for the lame response to this question

Nick Glennis — Fan

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

I used to write and do rankings, etc., but quit so I didn’t have to give all my supreme knowledge away and thus leveling the playing field. So now, instead of DJing and having the world groove to my beat, I just enjoy DANCING! @TacoHuntersDyno

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

“That Sexy Beast” Shane “Master P.” Hallam.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

As always, play the cards I was dealt.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I’ll keep it PG and not share my bedroom antics. That aside, I’m such a phenomenal driver that if you take the amount of drugs that would render the average man incapable of walking and give them to me, I could still drive safe.

Steve Labac — Fan

Can you give me a two-sentence introduction to your fantasy football “personna”? Feel free to include your Twitter handle.

@IHaveAZombPlan. My persona? Just depends on my mood and my league mates. I’m usually a calm storm of fantasy dominance, but if the conditions are right I like to stir the pot.

Who in your division do you want to take down the most?

Probably Allie Fontana, it was a HUGE let down when I didn’t get Jimmy Graham at 4.07, I’ll probably hold that grudge for a bit. Plus, I’m going to be questioning if my choice of Cam over Forsett in the third was wise for awhile.

What kind of “strategery” do you plan to employ during this unusual QB flex draft?

Probably a boring response, but I went BPA for the most part. I wasn’t planning on taking QBs early but when Russell Wilson “fell” I decided to take him, especially since I took Romo over him last year. When the third rolled around I thought it would be fun to have him and Cam given the bonus for rushing attempts, originally I was planning on aiming for Kaepernick later. After that it was just filling based on BPA, didn’t look at positions so much.

What is one non-fantasy football talent that would shock and awe the rest of the league?

I’m not all that talented. I do own a craft beer store, with another on the way, that usually piques people’s interest. [Zach note: My new best friend]
